Yooka-Laylee exclusive: Reviving a genre with Unity on PS4, Xbox One, Wii U & PC

When you take a look at the past and think about the Nintendo 64 (N64) era, there are a number of franchises that stick out as being significant. Games like Mario Kart, GoldenEye 007, Star Fox 64 and others immediately come to mind, but personally, one particular franchise stands apart from them more than any of them: Banjo-Kazooie.

So glad to see this game getting made. We definitely need the return of 3D platformers

Hope this game can ignite more of them. Watch Rare announce a Banjo reboot at E3, that'd be crazy. Though I must say I would still be pumped more for Yooka Laylee than that. More of these is all good though, keep em comin.

And watch as that reboot sucks just like the last reboot they tried.

After Playing Mario 64 on Christmas Day in 1996, the day I got my N64, I was obsessed with finding and playing any game that was even close to or even slightly similar to Mario 64.

Luckily there were enough games to satisfy most of us, but then they stopped being made by developers for some strange dumb reason.

* Can't wait to play this whenever it's done.

Not hating on Banjo or Yooka but what "Genre" are they reviving?

3d platformers?

Like Super Mario Land 3d on Wiiu?

or Knack on PS4?

I never played Banjo, what am I missing? I think people just want Rare back making real games and not Kinect fodder.

Still kind of a dying genre compared to how it was a few generations ago during the PS1/N64 era.

Banjo-Kazooie is regarded as one of the best 3D platformers on N64 that even rivals Super Mario 64.

If one game is all it takes to keep a genre alive then Nintendo has been keeping 3D platformers alive. Even with 2 games the genre is barely breathing. Would be nice to get more.

Seeing a game announced for the Wii U is so rare LOL
